The Real Israel: Inspiration for 2021

Sunday, February 28, 2021 16 Adar 5781

3:00 PM - 4:00 PMZoom Videoconference

Beth Am Welcomes Guest Speaker Richard Block, Rabbi Emeritus of Congregation Beth Am

Israel’s virtues and achievements are far too little known and underappreciated. Traditional and social media focus obsessively on its conflict with the Palestinians and on its defects — real, exaggerated and imagined. Thus, both Israel’s detractors and more than a few of its admirers are profoundly uninformed. Israel is vastly more than the sum of its conflicts and flaws. This truth needs and deserves to be known.

Rabbi Block, Rabbi Emeritus of Congregation Beth Am, will be addressing Israel’s outstanding worldwide contributions in many fields, including medicine, technology and the environment.
